doesn't removing them from the vCenter server through add and remove programs remove them, also check add and remove in your local client machine.

That�s a shame, it works with update manager client and plugin!

Sorry couldn't help.

No I can't see anything either except this post. Probably everyone is still in the midst of their trial periods and haven't come to uninstall them yet!

You would have to go into the MOB to do it

http:
ip of vc server\mob

Click on content, then on Extention manager, find the extention in your list and then click on unregister Extention , Put the extention name in from previous screen, click Invole Method and Viola!

Hi virtualchic,

thank you very much, this solved the question. very nice finding.

Best regards,

p.s. marked the wrong post as "correct answer" look for the post from "Sep 17, 2009 8:06 AM" to get the right answer.

Virtualchic - Thank you!!!

Nothing like a year old post that is exactly what you need after hours. I had not seen this area before either. Very cool stuff.

Might be ages since the original post, but also a thanks to virtualchic from me... I had a duff HP plugin that was uninstalled, but still existed in the list that I wanted to get rid of ("com.hp.insight"), and this worked perfectly for me! 🙂

Would never have found that without this thread!
